Touchdown Alabama Staff:
CEO, Founder and Publisher, Bennie Bice III, is a 2009 graduate of The University of Alabama. He started Touchdown Alabama in 2007, the year Nick Saban was hired while a student at Alabama. With the help from his parents, and the little money he had saved, Bennie was able to print his first magazine issue that fall. With the help of friends and others who believed in his dream, the magazine grew and took off from there. Now, Touchdown Alabama Magazine can be purchased at a variety of stores such as Books A Million throughout the state of Alabama, and many more.
